The Topics:
The Google Phone is Real

On a Google blog, the company has announced that it is handing Google-branded phones out to its employees. Rumors had flown around that Google would do its own phone. Should Apple worry?

Europe Drops its Browser Antitrust Case Against Microsoft

The European Commission is dropping its long-standing antitrust case against Microsoft involving browsers after the company agreed to offer users alternative choices to Internet Explorer, even as its browser market share continues to dip.

Can AOL Find New Success?

Now that AOL is on its own, does the company have a chance at success? It owns a number of media properties and there are a lot of hungry journalists out there. Could it rise to success as a media company?

Apple Vs. Nokia

Apple has filed a countersuit to Nokia's, alleging that Nokia is infringing its patents rather than the other way round. Is a settlement likely?

Will iTunes steer away from downloads?

Rumor has it that Apple is creating some kind of streaming-music service and is turning to Lala's managers to help make it happen. Does this make sense?
